Jarrold to Sponsor Fakenham Ladies Day

There are very few dates where the ladies from across Norfolk can get dressed up in their best frocks and go out for a day. The very first Ladies Day at Fakenham Racecourse was held back in 2012, and has now become one of the key dates in the Norfolk society calendar.

This year’s Ladies Day will take place on Sunday 4th June and be sponsored by Jarrold department store in Norwich. Both brands recognise the importance in collaborating with another local and upmarket family owned business which shares the same values and has a strong presence in the Norfolk fashion industry. Representatives from Jarrold and Fakenham Racecourse believe that working together will produce further exciting opportunities in enhancing customer experience at this annual event and will further embed it in the society calendar.

The Chief Executive of Fakenham Racecourse, David Hunter said “All of us at Fakenham are very excited and enthused to be working with Jarrolds who have agreed to be the title sponsor of Fakenham Ladies Race Day in a three year deal. The inaugural  running of The Jarrold Ladies Race Day will be on Sunday 4th June 2017 when the iconic and upmarket Norwich department store will sponsor the whole day in addition to the principal handicap steeple chase race. This is a really fantastic fit for two very well-known and highly respected Norfolk brands to be working so closely together. There is much synergy between Jarrold and the racecourse and we know that the partnership will increase the appeal, spread and experience of Ladies Day.

2017 will be the 6th year that Fakenham has hosted a Ladies Day and The Jarrold Ladies Race Day is sure to be the best yet. We have some exciting ideas that we will be putting together with Jarrold before the race day and on the day too. We are particularly proud that Jarrold will be taking the leading role in running and supporting our best-dressed lady, best-dressed couple and best hat competitions on the race day.”

John Adams, Director of Jarrolds Norwich said “Jarrold is delighted to announce its association with Fakenham Racecourse. We are very much looking forward to the Jarrold Ladies Race Day becoming a favourite event in the Norfolk Summer Calendar”.
